Is it a bird, is it a plane……. Nope!!

For the last couple of weeks my wife Angie, hasn’t been well. (She’s off work for the rest of the month… my poor ears!!) Seriously, I’ve been worried sick, but she’s ok-ish, slowly improving. Anyway, I’ve tried not to leave her alone for to long, which is proving difficult because I have to visit clients all over Derbyshire.

On this particular day, I had to shoot off to visit someone. Luckily, Angie’s friend came to see her at the exact same moment I was leaving the house. So I shot off like Lewis Hamilton but got stuck in traffic about 10 minutes into the journey. Then the traffic cleared and the road opened up. I put my foot down, eventually catching up with traffic that was sticking to the speed limit. There was 2 cars in front of me. The one leading our pack of 3 was a sporty thing with the soft top down. I couldn’t see the driver properly because of the car directly in front of me. All of a sudden the sporty one turned the speed on. Then, I vaguely saw something white in colour flying towards my windscreen. I slowed down and swerved a little to avoid it.

It flew past me so fast I couldn’t tell what it was. Was it a bird, a rabbit, a piece of white paper?! I looked in the rear view but couldn’t see any sign of it so I assumed it must have been a pigeon or a white bird. Then it dawned on me when the sporty one slowed down rapidly, indicated and stopped by the side of the road. As I drove past, I glanced and saw a bald headed man in the driving seat with a bright pink splodge on top of his head. I had just witnessed his wig or toupee taking flight!

I could see he was in the process of swearing and cursing himself for causing his hairpiece to leave it’s resting place without permission!

I chuckled to myself and wondered what the pink splodge was on top of his head. It amused me to think he had used denture gum to keep his wig in place. I rang Angie to tell her what I’d just witnessed to cheer her up. She was still laughing when I ended the call. The things you see!!!

  1. Considering he was probably too old for that car youโ€™re lucky it was only his syrup that parted company with his body. God knows what else about him might have been fakeโ€ฆ

  2. Ugggh! Probably one of the worst nightmares a person can find themselves in, usually only dreampt, not usually actually happening, like the popular “waking up in class completely naked” nightmare. At least your better half got a good guffaw out of it–and laughter is healing, as we all know. Hope she’s back on her feet very soon, John!

    1. Thanks Sel โค you know I did feel a little bit sorry but he looked very angry when I drove past him. If that had happened to me I would have burst into fits of laughter. Maybe his sense of humour was hidden somewhere in his syrup.

  3. Thanks for the laugh, John! Ha ha…you would think that rule number one in a convertible would be to use a better glue on your wig!!
    Hope Angie is feeling much better…sending white healing light!

  4. Brilliant! What a laugh!

    I am so sorry to read that Angie has been unwell though. Having battled for four months myself, I know how horrible ill health is. I am glad she has you to love on her.
    Hoping for a speedier recovery for her ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. I’ve been very bad at blogging, because of my health. There’s a post there somewhere explaining. Ha ha! Basically, they say I have Long Covid. The fatigue was made worse because I have chronic fatigue to begin with! (rolling my eyes here ๐Ÿ˜› ) BUT, thing is, the fatigue, and neurological side of things should have eased up by now .. and although I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel, I am still not sure if it’s good light, or another train coming ๐Ÿ˜›
        I’ll be okay though, in the end.
        Glad Angie is getting better โค
